Are You Going To Blue Jays Games?

No? Your not alone. Despite some early success on the field, the Jays are a disaster at the gate (as predicted).

“With 10 home games in the first month of the season, crowds at the Rogers Centre are down on average to 20,396 from 26,864 in 2008. Washington, Detroit and Atlanta, join the Jays as the so-called biggest losers, according to baseball’s monthly attendance report. The two Florida teams – the Marlins and Rays – show the biggest gains, followed by Oakland, Philadelphia, and Cincinnati.”

That, my friends is not good. Hopes we may have had for an increase in spending will be dashed by declining revenues for sure.

All is not lost Jays fans, the good folks believe that things are on pace to improve…

“Our belief was that the team would play better than was suggested, and it has. So once you get to the prime months of June, July, and August, you project bigger numbers.”

I hope they are right. I fear they are wrong.
